Hi,
My mom has had PD for 20 years.. Lately her eye lids are staying closed and at the same time she is also slowing down her motions.
I have read about botox injection etc.
Is there any other way to improve this condition?
Thank you
Sam

In my case (20+ years of PD symptoms) my sticky eyelids were caused by ever more slowly blinking of the eyes. I have had extremely dry eyes for at least 15 years, made much worse by LASIK 12 years ago. I use extra thick eye drops during the day and a petroleum jelly/mineral oil gel at night (all OTC). My favorite brands are Genteal and Systane.

I have also had problems with excess saliva, for which I receive Botox injections every 3 months or so. It seems to me that if dryness is the problem, Botox would make it worse.
